Way of Seeing Post

This photograph definitely shows a very distinct divide between the left and right side of the photo. On the left side, complete chaos and darkness, and you can really see the anguish on the faces of the people. On the right side, you see lightness, calm, and order. Just as the picture we looked at in class, each half of this photo can be looked at as an individual photo, however it has the biggest impact when viewed as a whole. I love the contrast in this photo, not only between the light and dark, but also between the order and disorder. This picture tells a story, even without the viewer knowing any specific details about what is going on. I think this is what makes this such a strong photograph.
